The present study was designed to find the relation between certain hematological parameters and pregnancy. The study used one hundred volunteers (seventy five pregnant women and twenty five non-pregnant women). Then, pregnant women divided into three subgroups according to the trimester (first trimester, second trimester and third trimester). Hematological tests showed significant increased (P<0.05) in TIBC (Total Iron Binding Capacity) and significant decreased (P<0.05) in Hepcidin, ferritin, Iron, Hb (hemoglobin) and MCV (mean corpuscular volume) compared with non-pregnant women group. Third trimester show a high affected according to the results compare with other trimesters. It was concluded from this study that the pregnancy led to several hematological parameters change
